Yesterday turned out to be my time for serene reading. I spent the better part of the day curled up on my bed with Girl with the Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier. A friend recommended the book to me three years ago, but I was on a classics kick at the time and just filed away the information for a later date. I finally got a copy of it for my birthday early this month, and I swear there's been a big, blinking neon sign flashing "READ ME" next to this book for the last two weeks. After reading a couple of "meh" books recently, it was just what I needed this week.
On tap for the rest of the week:
I'm about halfway through both The Wednesday Sisters and First Daughter. I won a signed copy of The Joy of Spooking: Fiendish Deeds by P.J. Bracegirdle from Presenting Lenore and I'm really looking forward to diving into it. At the pace I read, these three books will probably only last me until Wednesday at the latest, but I'm not going to plan beyond that. I'll let the next few books choose me. Maybe that neon sign will park itself next to something else.
The Week in Reviews:
The White Mary by Kira Salak
Kaimira: The Sky Village by Monk and Nigel Ashland
